VOLUME-1. " FAIRMONT, WEST VIRGINIA, SATURDAY, APRIL 23, 1904. NUMBER 5. EXCELLENT WERE THE EXERCISES AT THE FIRST WARD PUBLIC SCHOOL'S LAST NIGHT. A LARGE CROWD WAS PRESENTIN FACT MANY COULD NOT GET INTO THE HOUSE. A LARGE AND INTERESTING CLASS OF GRADUATES? " SCHOOL~SUCCESSFUL. The Commencement exercises of the First ward public schools were held at the Diamond street M. E. Church last evening. The people began to gather soon after seven o'clock, and at eight the'aisles and stairways were blocked, and dozens were going away because there was no room. Promptly at eight o'clock the class filed in to a march rendered by the orchestra. The class is composed of twenty-seven members, which is the largest in the history of the school. A representative program was rendered, as the class was entirely too large for all of them to perform. The five who appeared on the program were not picked by the teacherS, but lots were cast giving all the same chance. Miss Eva Griffith opened the program by reciting "In tbe Signal Box" in a very pleasing manner. She was followed by Mr. Troy Powell, who gave an original oration, "Education Under Difficulties." Miss Fannie : May Bonghner in an original essay, "'Fighting Windmills." Miss Alma .Eager then recited the. comic piece, "Mr. Brown Gets His Hair Cut." They all.did exceedingly well, showing that their work and that of their teachers has not been in vain. High class music was interspersed through the program, furnished by Prof. Shaw's orchestra. The class was presented by Principal J. C. Bond to County Supt. Carter L. Faust, who presented them with their diplomas in a well-worded little speech. The audience then crowded around to congratulate the? class and teachers on their work ? Eleven of .the class had completed their work at the Christmas holidays, and some have been attending the Fairmont High School since. The others have just., completed ' their work. The ones f'ao comjileted at Christmas are, Wayne Bartholows,. Fay Donliam, Pearl Barnes, Alma Rager, Dora Reel, Fannie Robinson, Julia Swisher, Lenore Gaskius and Bessie Smith. The ones who have just completed are. Brooks Bartliolow, Curtis Daugherty, Will Daugherty, Willie Griffith. Emory Harbert, Harold Kinderman, Troy Powell, May Boughner, Kate Donham, Pearl Fiser, Eva Griffith, Tillie McKinnev, Bessie Pople, Mary Smith. Blanche Thomas and Nellie Wilson. Miss Boyce was not able to be present at the exercises last evening. The term just ended has been a successful one. The enrollment is the greatest in the school history, there being 444. There were only seven teachers this year and the rooms were all crowded, in fact so much so that the teachers could not do justice. There are only six rooms in the old building and the Board of Education had to rent a room for the Primary pupils. The great need of a new building is apparent to every one. It is true that the district will have to be Qounaeu, uul hi etc auuuiu maac uu un.ference. The people of the First ward need a good, large building with an auditorium so the people will not have to be turned away from the exercises as they were last night. The Board of Education is composed of enterprising citizens who will do, and are at present doing, all they can toward getting a new building. The teachers for the year just ended were: Principal. J. C. Bond Assistants, Thomas C. -Moore, Misses Florence VV. Lavelle, Adelaide M. Eliason, Minnie E. Hughes, Nettie I. McAllister and Minnie E. Lloyd. All have worked hard the past year and are proud of the class just sent out. Young Lady Murdered. FORT WORTH, Texas, April 2,1.?

' * THE NEW COOK'S h The new Cook Hospital -will be thrown open to the public Wednesday evening, April 27, and at that time a public reception will be given by Dr. Cook, who desires that the people shall know what a fine structure he has built. The institution, known as Cook's Hospital, Is four and a half years old in Fairmont. At first Dr. Cook began with a small building, situated on Gaston avenue.
